Notable Changes in Igor Pro 7.05

Please see the Igor Pro 7.05 Beta 1 release announcement for a list of changes made prior to release of the beta. In addition, the following changes were made after the last beta was released:



  • Aliases or shortcuts to experiment files dragged onto the command window are now properly resolved to the referenced file, and open successfully.
  • Command sequences using Execute/P/Q and PauseForUser no longer leave the Macros menu showing only "Abort Macro Execution".
  • Macintosh: Fixed behavior introduced in 7.05B01 that led to problems with data placed on the clipboard by Igor when used in other applications. For example, copying numeric data from a table and pasting into Excel 2016 resulted in Excel treating the first cell as a text value, not a numeric value.
  • Macintosh: Fixed incorrect setting of S_value output variable in ExecuteScriptText when the script failed and gave an error message. This particular bug was introduced by a related ExecuteScriptText fix in 7.05B01.
  • Windows: Re-selecting the most recent file or experiment no longer fails.
  • It was possible to create a picture with no name by passing $"" or with a liberal name by passing $<string containing liberal name> to DrawPICT as the picture name. These should not have been allowed and are now errors.
